75% of every donation to Trump's 'election defense fund' could be spent by the president himself

on things like paying family members or financing a 2024 bid

President Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election but continues to bombard voters with repeated texts and emails seeking donations for his efforts to overturn the results.

"Please contribute $5 RIGHT NOW to the Election Defense Fund to stop the Radical Left from STEALING this Election," one campaign email said on Tuesday.

However, it remains unknown exactly what that money is being used for.

In the days following the election, the fine print on Trump's Make America Great Again Committee donation page said 60% of every contribution would be routed to pay off campaign debt. Trump then directed that share of funds to his new leadership political action committee, Save America, which he launched on November 9, three days after Decision Desk HQ and Insider called the race for President-elect Joe Biden.

The details have been updated again. Now the first 75% of each donation goes to Save America, but the amount is capped at $5,000. Once that dollar amount has been met, a portion of the contribution goes to the Trump campaign's recount account. And 25% of the money is sent to a Republican National Committee account.

4. Why stop him?!

Let him fleece his rubes! Let them spend their money on the fool's errand.

Then there will be less money available for those rubes to spend on future political expenses.

Let's play the long game!

2. Whaaaa? What do you mean, 'what's it going to be used for'?

Have you any idea how much it costs to rent out The (parking lot of) Four Seasons (total landscaping)?

To get AAA-level guest speakers like (convicted sex offender) Daryl Brooks to speak at your events?

HAVE YOU SEEN HOW MUCH RUDY CHARGES?!?

C'mon people.

Fork over the dough!

6. Fools and their money soon to be parted

At least they'll be happy about being fleeced. Don't know if I can say the same for their kids watching the family fortune handed over to a scam artist who claims to be worth TEN BILLION DOLLARS.
